Digital disruption : Cinema moves on-line / Edited by Dina Iordanova and Stuart Cunningham
St Andrews, Scotland: St Andrews Film Studies, 2012.
Call No: 301(-5) IOR Edition: 2012 Place: St Andrews, Scotland Publisher: St Andrews Film Studies PubDate: 2012 PhysDes: viii, 223 p. ; 23 cm Subject: DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION; INTERNET AND THE CINEMA; DISTRIBUTION; COPYRIGHT; YOUTUBE Summary: ‘Nobody knows anything’, said William Goldman of studio filmmaking. The rule is ever more apt as we survey the radical changes that digital distribution, along with the digitisation of production and exhibition, is wreaking on global film circulation.
Digital Disruption: Cinema Moves On-line helps to make sense of what has happened in the short but turbulent history of on-line distribution. It provides a realistic assessment of the genuine and not-so-promising methods that have been tried to address the disruptions that moving from ‘analogue dollars’ to ‘digital cents’ has provoked in the film industry. Paying close attention to how the Majors have dealt with the challenges – often unsuccessfully – it focuses as much attention on innovations and practices outside the mainstream. Throughout, it is alive to, and showcases, important entrepreneurial innovations such as Mubi, Jaman, Withoutabox and IMDb.
Written by leading academic commentators that have followed the fortunes of world cinema closely and passionately, as well as experienced hands close to the fluctuating fortunes of the industry, Digital Disruption: Cinema Moves On-line is an indispensable guide to great changes in film and its audiences. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9780956373076 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema, 2014 Contents: Digital Disruption: Technological Innovation and Global Film Circulation / Dina Iordanova -- On-line Film Distribution: Its History and Global Complexion / Stuart Cunningham and Jon Silver -- Digital Revolution: Active Audiences and Fragmented Consumption / Michael Gubbins -- Internet-enabled Dissemination: Managing Uncertainty in the Film Value Chain / Michael Franklin -- Convergence, Digitisation and the Future of Film Festivals / Marijke De Valck -- Mission Unreachable: How Jaman Is Shaping the Future of On-line Distribution / Jon Silver, Stuart Cunningham, Mark David Ryan -- ‘IMDb Helps Me Sleep at Night’: How a Simple Database Changed the World of Film / Alex Fischer -- ‘The Fully Clickable Submission’: How Withoutabox Captured the Hearts and Minds of Film Festivals Everywhere / Alex Fischer -- Spotlight on MUBI: Two Interviews with Efe Cakarel, Founder and CEO of MUBI / Paul Fileri and Ruby Cheung -- ‘What Do You Do with What You See?’: Patterns and Uses of Cinéphilia, Then and Now / Ben Slater -- Appendix 1: Timeline – On-line Distribution of Feature Films / Stuart Cunningham and Jon Silver -- Appendix 2: A Selection of / Mostly Legal) VOD and On-line Content Providers / Stuart Cunningham and Jon Silver -- Appendix 3: Comparative Internet Rankings: 40 International On-line Movies-on-demand Sites / Stuart Cunningham and Jon Silver -- Appendix 4: Comparative Deal Terms in 2009 / Stuart Cunningham and Jon Silver -- Appendix 5: Related Websites / Alexander Marlow-Mann More info
Ephemeral media : Transitory screen culture from television to YouTube / Paul Grainge
Houndsmill, Basingstoke, Hampshire ; New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2011.
Call No: 77 EPH Author: Grainge, Paul, 1972 - Place: Houndsmill, Basingstoke, Hampshire ; New York Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan PubDate: 2011 PhysDes: viii, 236 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm. Subject: CONVERGENCE; INTERNET AND THE CINEMA; INTERNET AND TV; SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE CINEMA; ONLINE VIDEO PROGRAMMING; COMPUTERIZED ANIMATION AND SPECIAL EFFECTS; COMPUTERS AND THE CINEMA; YOUTUBE; ADVERTISING Summary: "From the television interstitials that appear between programmes to the brief clips and videos that proliferate on YouTube, contemporary screen culture is populated by short-forms that make claims for our attention. Ephemeral Media provides a unique focus on these fleeting but increasingly ubiquitous texts. Through case studies in television and web entertainment, this original book looks at the production of media at the edges, within the junctions, and that surround the output of networks and studios. Analyzing promos and idents, emergent forms of online TV and web drama, and the burgeoning world of worker- and user-generated content, this new collection also examines screen forms that circulate "between," "beyond" and "below" the TV programs and films traditionally privileged within screen studies. With essays by leading international scholars in television, film and new media studies, as well as interviews with key industry figures, Ephemeral Media explores the practices, strategies and textual forms helping producers (and viewers) negotiate a fast-paced mediascape. Examining dynamics of brevity and evanescence in the television and new media environment, Ephemeral Media provides a new perspective on the transitory, and transitional, nature of screen culture in the early 21st century"-- Blurb Notes: Formerly CIP.

Hollywood's copyright wars : from Edison to the internet / Peter Decherney

Call No: 432.4 DEC Author: Decherney, Peter Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Columbia University Press PubDate: 2013 PhysDes: xii, 287 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm Subject: AUTHORSHIP; COPYRIGHT; COPYRIGHT.

Though much of Hollywood's engagement with the law occurs offstage, in the larger theater of copyright, many of Hollywood's valued treasures - from Modern Times (1936) to Star Wars (1977) - cannot be fully understood without appreciating their legal controversies. Peter Decherney shows that the history of intellectual property in Hollywood has not always mirrored the evolution of the law and recounts these extralegal solutions and their impact on American media and culture." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Contains list of illustrations and index ISBN: 9780231159470 More info
How to watch television / edited by Ethan Thompson and Jason Mittell
New York: New York University Press, 2013.
Call No: 67(04) THO Author: Thompson, Ethan; Mittell, Jason Source: US Place: New York Publisher: New York University Press PubDate: 2013 PhysDes: x, 396 pages : illustrations ; 26 cm Subject: AESTHETICS; AUDIENCES; CRITICISM, TV.; CULTURAL IMPERIALISM; FEMINISM AND TV; INDUSTRY, TV.; INDUSTRY, TV. USA; NATIONAL CULTURE AND TV; POLITICS AND TV; YOUTUBE Summary: "We all have opinions about the television shows we watch, but television criticism is about much more than simply evaluating the merits of a particular show and deeming it "good" or "bad". Rather, criticism uses the close examination of a television program to explore that program's cultural significance, creative strategies, and its place in a broader social context. How to Watch Television brings together forty original essays from today's leading scholars on television culture, writing about the programs they care (and think) the most about. Each essay focuses on a particular television show, demonstrating one way to read the program and, through it, our media culture. The essays model how to practice media criticism in accessible language, providing critical insights through analysis - suggesting a way of looking at TV that students and interested viewers might emulate. The contributors discuss a wide range of television programs past and present, covering many formats and genres, broadcast and cable, providing a broad representation of the programs that are likely to be covered in a media studies course. While the book primarily focuses on American television, important programs with international origins and transnational circulation are also covered. Addressing television series from the medium's earliest days to contemporary online transformations of television, How to Watch Television is designed to engender classroom discussion among television critics of all backgrounds." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index ISBN: 9780814763988 Contents: Acknowledgements -- Introduction: an owner's manual for television: Ethan Thompson and Jason Mittell --; I.

The Oxford handbook of new audiovisual aesthetics / edited by John Richardson, Claudia Gorbman, Carol Vernallis

Call No: 220 OXF Author: Richardson, John; Gorbman, Claudia; Vernallis, Carol Source: US Place: New York Publisher: Oxford University Press PubDate: c2013 PhysDes: Oxford University Press Subject: TECHNOLOGY AND THE CINEMA; TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS; TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENTS; TECHNOLOGY AND TV; INTERNET; INTERNET AND THE CINEMA; INTERNET AND TV; YOUTUBE; AESTHETICS; ANIMATION; MULTIMEDIA; SOUND REPRODUCTION; MEDIA; SOUND Summary: This book offers new ways to read the audiovisual. In the media landscapes of today, conglomerates jockey for primacy and the internet increasingly places media in the hands of individuals - producing the range of phenomena from movie blockbuster to YouTube aesthetics. Media forms and genres are proliferating and interpenetrating, from movies, music and other entertainments streaming on computers and iPods to video games and wireless phones. The audiovisual environment of everyday life, too - from street to stadium to classroom - would at times be hardly recognizable to the mid-twentieth-century subject. This book provides a definitive cross-section of current ways of thinking about sound and image. Its authors - leading scholars and promising younger ones, audiovisual practitioners and non-academic writers (both mainstream and independent) - open the discussion on audiovisual aesthetics in new directions. Our contributors come from fields including film, visual arts, new media, cultural theory, and sound and music studies, and they draw variously from economic, political, institutional, psychoanalytic, genre-based, auteurist, internationalist, reception-focused, technological, and cultural approaches to questions concerning today's sound and image.

Videocracy : how YouTube is changing the world... with double rainbows, singing foxes, and other trends we can't stop watching / Kevin Allocca
London: Bloomsbury Publishing, 2018.
Call No: 408 ALL Author: Allocca, Kevin Place: London Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing PubDate: 2018 PhysDes: xv, 335 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm. Subject: YOUTUBE; ONLINE VIDEO PROGRAMMING; SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE CINEMA; SPECTATORSHIP; INTERNET Summary: From YouTube's Head of Culture and Trends, a rousing and illuminating behind-the-scenes exploration of internet video's massive impact on our world. Whether your favorite YouTube video is a cat on a Roomba, Gangnam Style, the Bed Intruder song, an ASAPscience explainer, Rebecca Black's Friday, or the Evolution of Dance, Kevin Allocca's Videocracy reveals how these beloved videos and famous trends--and many more--came to be and why they mean more than you might think. YouTube is the biggest pool of cultural data since the beginning of recorded communication, with four hundred hours of video uploaded every minute. (It would take you more than sixty-five years just to watch to watch the vlogs, music videos, tutorials, and other content posted in a single day!) This activity reflects who we are, in all our glory and ignominy. As Allocca says, if aliens wanted to understand our planet, he'd give them Google. If they wanted to understand us, he'd give them YouTube. In Videocracy, Allocca lays bare what YouTube videos say about our society and how our actions online--watching, sharing, commenting on, and remixing the people and clips that captivate us--are changing the face of entertainment, advertising, politics, and more. Via YouTube, we are fueling social movements, enforcing human rights, and redefining art--a lot more than you'd expect from a bunch of viral clips.

In this timely and comprehensive introduction to how Youtube is being used and why it matters, Burgess and Green discuss the ways that it relates to wider transformations in culture, society, and the economy. The book critically examines the public debates surrounding the site, demonstrating how it is central to struggles for authority and control in the new media environment. Drawing on a range of theoretical sources and empirical research, the authors discuss how Youtube is being used by the media industries, by audiences and amateur producers, and by particular communities of interest, and the ways in which these uses challenge existing ideas about cultural 'production' and 'consumption' "-- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references (p. 152-169) and index ISBN: 9780745644790 Contents: Contents: 1.
